  • Very cool construction, history of the church is interesting. It has survived several tsunamis and I believe an earthquake or two as well. There is a small cemetery plot out front with head stones dated back a century or more. Located close to a busy shopping area with tourist stores as well as food and activity centres. It is a nice place to take a break from the busy streets, you can sit in the church pews and enjoy the peaceful quite atmosphere. Volunteer staff is on hand to provide a brief tour and run down of the church’s history and answer any questions. Small parking lot is for the childcare centre, not the church itself or so we were told.
  • Second time we have attended this church while on vacation. Singing and sermon were great. The lady who made political comments at the beginning of the service was inappropriate. Tell your own truth but don’t jump to conclusions about entire groups of people.
